Hudson River School

Hudson River School

In the mid-19th century, a new school of art introduced a unique way of portraying landscape paintings of picturesque settings.

The Hudson River School of painters flourished from the mid-1830s to the mid-1870s and gave America its first major school of art. Paintings included in this stamp set include Distant View of Niagara Falls (1830) by Thomas Cole, from the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago; Summer Afternoon (1865) by Asher B. Durand, from the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Sunset (1856) by Frederic Edwin Church, from the collection of the Munson-Williams-Proctor Art Institute; and Grand Canyon (1912) by Thomas Moran, from the collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

The Hudson River School stamp set is now available as First-Class Mail Forever postage by going to USPS.com or by clicking here.
